The fundraiser also saw old and new Asha supporters gather together for a silent auction followed by dinner. The sumptuous Indian dinner was provided by Harjeet, the owner of Aroma Indian Cuisine. Highly impressed by Asha’s work, William and his wife Anna Leigon, owners of Jamieson Ranch, agreed to host the 17th Asha Day at Napa next year.
